    iPad stylus which has a fine tip?

    Great analysis, as usual, jsh1120, but I think you made a small "glitch": I think the Dagi is pretty poor. It is much like the Jot, but was quite ineffective when I tested it. With the conductive grease, the Jot is again my favorite for pure handwriting, with the iFaraday topping the list for...

    iPen for iPad

    On the fineness of stroke---I think that it should in fact be possible to get it as fine as one pixel. Accuracy, though, is another matter. I think that some of these more sophisticated devices might have different mechanisms and algorithms for determining pen point location. As I recall, at...

    Azul Player + Atomic Web = Awesomeness

    On Azul---just navigate to their website (I think it is available from the app, maybe the home button?) and they have you typing in something like Post moderated due to discussion of piracy This gets you to a download site. What is a bit strange to me is that this app is certified by Apple...

    HAPPY FRIDAY!! What is Everyone Up to for the Weekend??

    Theravada or Mahayana Buddhism?

    iPen for iPad

    The iPen looks interesting, but I have to admit it, the Cregle Penbook looks even more interesting! If and when either hits the market I will be interested, but 89 bucks for the iPen as a Kickstarter gamble is too much. I invested twenty or so in the Adonit Jot Kickstarter, only to find that...

    Why is 3G so expensive?

    Yep! Deregulation has unleashed the Wall Street vultures and the banks, created a piranha filled jungle river of the cummunications industry, and led to pandemonium in the air travel industry. Have you ever tried to sit down and really dompare the various plans offered by cell phone companies...

    Connecting iPad1 to TV

    I have been having good luck with my Apple tv in conjunction with AVPlayer HD and also with AZUL. But if you have .avi videos (and maybe some other formats as well?) you will have to convert them with Handbrake or somesuch to stream them. I went through the same thought process as you and...

    Jot Stylus

    Well, at this point I would go for the iFaraday. I personally favor the SALT (shallow angle light touch) model for my handwriting style. It is reliable and does not skip. Of course it doesn't have the precision of the Jot. But don't be afraid of taking the disc off the Jot. It doesn't...

    Jot Stylus

    Too bad Fortigurn's posts were removed. Seemed to me that he was just being helpful, and not pushing the product---at least on this thread. I just saw this on the Adonit web sit and thought it might be of interest to others as well: "Well, the academic year is wrapping up, and I had a lot of...

    What are you reading now?

    Ender's Game was great. Haven't read any of the sequels. Just finished Dune (again). First read it in serial form in Analog. Haven't read anything by Cherryh. Which is first in the series? I will give him a try. Really liked what I have read of Haldeman. I think only the first volume of...

    Yeah, I've been following your posts with interest, JSH. Just wasn't sure how they compared with whatever is considered as standard. And I thought that portability was a big issue for you. I do appreciate Rich's pix and discussion also. That helps. I have an Apple docking station cum...

    What are you reading now?

    "petit enfant" = grandson en francais. I'll have to try Plainsman. Please post your thoughts on the Martin stories when done. The only stuff I have read by Farmer IS his Riverworld series. Have to admit that he kept me going through the whole thing.

    What are you reading now?

    The best of Zane Grey (IMHO) is Riders of the Purple Sage. I, too, am an SF fan---though of the "hard science" variety: Heinlein, Azimov, etc. Also like the River World series by Phillip Jose Farmer, and even some fantasy---say by that consummate master, Roger Zelazny. Haven't read The Last...

    Everything to do with XMAS!

    Sounds to me like something that oozes out of a blister on Santa's hand that he acquired from holding on to that huge sack!

    Rich, Could you give me some idea about the size? Unfortunately, few of the keyboard descriptions I have read---including the one for the Appe---give me any indication of how their sizes compare with the "standard" keyboard. I am looking for typing comfort, not portability. Got any feel for...
